The space
This fairytale cottage hides a smart contemporary addition, built in the same style with the same local oak to mirror the craftsmanship of the older house. It features plenty of sofas to relax on, TV, wifi, a glass roofed dining area, and all modern conveniences. Four of the cottage's bedrooms are up spiral staircases and one double bedroom is on the ground floor (it even has its own external door). The open plan kitchen/living area has a range cooker, separate fridge and freezer, and plenty of food prepping area. But if you don't feel like cooking, the village pub is less than 100 yards away serving amazing gastronomy.
There is a billiard room with a 6ft pool table and an assortment of board games.

Guest access
Guests get the run of the entire house and garden with space for one or two cars directly outside.

Other things to note
Staying in this ancient cottage constructed with 13th century beams and looking out at a beautiful 12th Century Norman church is not just a way to experience history but to connect with nature and the countryside with delightful walks all around, ready and waiting for your wellies.

Fingest, England, United Kingdom

Fingest is ramblers heaven and ideal if you're looking to get away from it all to experience true rural bliss... without having to travel too far from London. Located on the Chiltern Way, the village is the centre for a number of great walks affording stunning views and cosy pubs. The area, known as the Hambleden Valley is a conservation area, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and so quintessentially rural England, you'll recognise the village from many episodes of Midsomer Murders, the windmill at the top of the hill from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the neighbouring village, Turville (a 20 minute walk away) is not only Dibley (as in The Vicar Of) but is the setting of Goodnight Mr Tom and hundreds of classic British films.

We're a GP Doctor and a Journalist/Novelist, working mostly in London. Church Cottage was bought and extended by us so that we could get some tranquillity and our children could experience country life. But now that they've moved into their teens and twenties they're more interested in the bright lights and smoke of the city; so now we can offer the home from home we love to guests.
